- Does the refrigerator seem strangely empty when it was always kept fully stocked? Or do you find it filled with many of the same things?

Assisted Living communities are supportive living communities that are staffed 24 hours a day with trained staff. They are licensed and regulated by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. Assisted living communities generally provide private rooms, meals, activities and other services.
Rosemary House is the premier assisted living community in Southeast, Texas and Austin/San Antonio area. We are family owned and operated and have been serving the community for several years.
Not only does Rosemary House have a full time nurse and well trained staff available 24 hours a day to look after your every need, semiprivate and private room options available, three home cooked meals every day, weekly housekeeping and laundry services, transportation and apartment maintenance, but you have a built in community of friends that quickly becomes family.
Assisted living communities provide many of the same services that have historically been provided in nursing homes. However, living in an assisted living community is more like living in your home instead of living in a clinical nursing home where more medical care can be provided.
In an assisted living community, you have your own private room. Many nursing homes still utilize what is called a semi-private model—that means, you and another person share a bedroom and are generally separated only by a privacy curtain.
